This will be the last post in my series on Eric Nenno, the child-killer I met in 2006.
Unless any of you have questions, of course.
So one thing that sticks in my mind from the visit was the leaving of it. I remember sitting there for the last fifteen minutes wondering what the heck one says to a guy who's about to be executed. Remember, I met him on a Friday afternoon, his execution was scheduled (and was carried out) on the following Tuesday.
"Have a nice life" (okay, clearly not that one)?
"Have a nice weekend" (because that's all ya got left)?
"Take care of yourself" (before someone else does)?
"Seeya" (hopefully not, and certainly not for a while)?
In the end I opted for "Thanks for your time, good luck." And a slightly awkward wave through the glass.
